Regardless of any reasons, the voucher is non claimable on the 31st day of its expiration, we have been too lenient and considerate already by giving extra 30 days that other similar businesses wont give this grace period and we cannot keep extending the allowable claim date.

- It is always highly advisable to book an appointment than walking in, we can serve any walk ins as long as we have availability and allowable time slot before any next other booked customers upon their arrival. 

Can the recipient swap the services stated in the voucher ?

- Yes, with additional fees to match the price of the services they wanted to have if they wanted to upgrade (ex: one hour deep tissue massage voucher @$75 but the holder wanted a 90 minutes deep tissue massage, its ok with additional $25 to match the price of the 90 minutes deep tissue massage or any services they choose to have) or can be used to reduced the price of any services with higher price value they preferred instead.

- If in any case they wanted to downgrade or reduce the duration. We will not refund any left behind value of the voucher (ex: 90 minutes deep tissue massage voucher but the holder has to leave early so he/she only took 60 minutes out of 90 mins) The holder cannot request to refund any payments or write a new 30 minutes voucher which they have not used to give it back to them. It is part of our voucher condition that all of our voucher are single use on one visit only.

- No, we do not sell our gift voucher in bulk with lesser pricing (ex: 10pcs of 60 minutes deep tissue massage vouchers priced at $75 each will cost $750) we leave those types of promotions to other massage spa's nearby who sell VIP package deals and we have no intention to mimic or copy those.

Is there any way that the recipient of  the gift voucher will get refused service?

Unwanted Vouchers

Unwanted voucher... I'm not interested nor do not like getting a massage 

It is not our liability that you or anyone got a massage gift voucher as a gift from someone who purchased it from us. It is between you/receiver and the person who bought and gave you that voucher. We have nothing to do with it and why did the purchaser purchase for the receiver a massage gift voucher from us instead of something else or cash. We did not influence the purchaser to buy a voucher from us for the gift voucher receiver. So therefore, the voucher is non-refundable.

I have a 2-hour or 90min massage voucher.... but I do not like massage and just want to use 30 minutes.

As the terms and conditions stated in the voucher. All our vouchers are single use by only a single person for a single visit only. It is not allowed for anyone holding a 2-hour voucher to come with another person for an hour of couples massage or anyone who has 60 mins voucher and comes with another person for two 30 minutes massage sessions. The price paid for the voucher is just for single use. Doing so will have us use twice the number of consumables we use for the massage for a single session, such as washing two massage table linings instead of one, using approx 40ml of sweet almond oil for two instead of 20ml, electricity used for airconditioning and other consumables will be twice or trice the amount while the amount paid by the voucher purchaser is not enough.

Just using a portion of the voucher 

The voucher holder likes shorter massage durations and only wants to do 30 mins/ 60 mins out of 90 minutes or a 2-hour voucher. The holder cannot claim a refund or ask for another voucher for whatever duration amount of voucher is left (ex: the holder has 90 mins voucher but only books for 60 mins and asks for a new 30-minute voucher. Applicable for all our voucher services). These requests will be declined. As explained above in this in paragraph, it is not suitable for our enterprise and unfair to allow this as we have to use twice or trice of consumables we needed for a single session that the voucher purchaser paid. The gift voucher purchaser is the one responsible for what the gift voucher receiver wants and prefers. The purchaser should have purchased two 30 minutes massage vouchers instead of a full 60-minute single session voucher or a 60-minute single session plus a 30-minute session voucher instead of 90 minutes single session voucher. Or two 60-minute vouchers instead of a 2-hour single session voucher. 

* Our stand here is strong, and this is non-negotiable. Anyone who will lowball negotiate will be blocked or dropped a trespass notice if a lowballing negotiation occurs on our premises. Despite the fact that we do sell gift vouchers, we highly recommend of just giving cash (than purchasing a voucher from us) and let the recipient purchase what they like if the recipient is known for being not fond of having a massage. Selling vouchers is our least preferred way to get revenue as it is almost similar to borrowing funds and having a liability, we do sell gift vouchers for formalities as other similar services providers do and it is mostly requested by the market including with our regular customers. To anyone not satisfied with this explanation and who has a voucher that fits the scenario in this explanation, we recommend them to report us to consumer.org.nz

Few facts about vouchers

The information below was based on CAB or Citizens Advice Bureau. regarding gift vouchers.

The Shop that sold the vouchers has closed down, What can I do?

If the company, business or shop you have a voucher for comes into a liquidation or business failure and becomes bankrupt. The voucher holder becomes an unsecured creditor of the business. You have the right to claim, but it may be a challenging and lengthy process. This bankrupt shop owner who owes you vouchers may have been instructed by the insolvency officer assigned to them not to deal or negotiate with creditors directly but to redirect you to the insolvency officer to discuss any re-payments if the insolvency manager or official assignee of the debtor cannot find any assets of the debtor or shop owner that can be sold to repay the creditors or you as a voucher holder.  The chance of getting your money refunded is very low.

  • If the gift voucher was purchased through a third party, try to ask for a refund from the third party

  • If the voucher was purchased using a credit card, Try to do a chargeback. 

In this time of instability, many businesses fail due to global occurrences. It is advisable to use the vouchers as soon as possible and not to purchase vouchers in bulk.

The Shop changed management and owners, can I still claim my voucher?

Unfortunately, the new business operators have no legal obligation to accept your voucher. One of the top reasons a new shop operator will get negative feedback is not honouring the voucher purchased from the previous shop owner. But according to CAB or Citizens Advice Bureau cab.org.nz. including consumer.org.nz The new owner is not obligated to accept the voucher purchased from the last owner's shop. 

It is advisable to use the voucher as soon as possible and not purchase vouchers in bulk. Same risk as if the shop is closed.

Voucher just expired last week or yesterday, Is there still a chance?

Whenever the voucher reached the expiration date stated on it. The business has no legal obligation to accept it, even if it is just recently expired. If ever, it's worth checking and asking if the company has a grace period for expired vouchers. If not, sorry. 

Note: We give 30 days grace period from the date the voucher expired for anyone with expired voucher to claim incase anyone missed the expiry date just for few dates. Regardless of any circumstances, we will not accept any expired gift vouchers on day 31 of expiration. Also we reserve the right to accept or refuse the expired voucher within that 30 days grace period. We do not feel any gains or profits whenever there are expired and unclaimed vouchers which are  purchased from us, we felt sorry for the purchaser that their present did not serve its purpose, but the voucher has to expire due to increasing cost of operations and change of pricing annually.

- The vouchers has to expire to avoid any possible loopholes such as hoarding the vouchers to re-sale or claim after two or more years when the prices has changed or inflated. And we want to clear our liability (liability or owing the customer a service for the money someone have paid) with-in or not over a year. Again, selling vouchers our least preferred way to gain revenue but we still sell gift vouchers as it is mostly requested by our clients and for their convenience, so please claim your vouchers before its expiration date.

- If in any case the voucher recipient have a medical condition such as just have undergone a surgery or anything that will prevent them to claim the voucher, we recommend them to pass it to someone else for claim, We believe it is the person who purchases and gives the voucher responsibility to asses or make a judgement if the person they wanted to give a voucher is suitable to have any of our services or not. 

- If there will be any new consumer law here in New Zealand that will require vouchers to have longer than a year expiration date, like the fair trading amendment bill of 2023 regarding requiring every gift vouchers to at least have minimum of three years validity, we will gladly support it and obliged. 

Lost voucher, Does the shop where bought the voucher has to replace it?

Generally, The business that sold the voucher is not liable to replace it. For us, this was risky, if anyone found the lost voucher after we replaced it. We become liable for two vouchers that were only bought for the price of one voucher. This is a loss for us. The holder of the lost voucher may come back after finding the missing voucher and hustle us to claim it. For other businesses with more sophisticated voucher distribution systems, If the vouchers are non-transferable. They may be able to replace the lost credits or vouchers.
